Some really nice snow growth with this batch moving through..nice little refresher. Definitely higher ratio than the last event.

Winter vibe right there, awesome.  It's November 28th.  That's a quality scene for this time of year. The past 48-72 hours have been winter-like.

Event totals: 0.2” Snow/Trace L.E.

 

We’ve had radar echoes pushing into the area since earlier this afternoon, with flakes here and there, but only in the past couple of hours have we begun to pick up some measurable accumulation.

 

Details from the 12:00 A.M. Waterbury observations:

New Snow: 0.2 inches

New Liquid: Trace

Temperature: 24.4 F

Sky: Light Snow (2-4 mm flakes)

Snow at the stake: 5.0 inches

SNE has that Nov 28-29 thread. Is anything going to happen up here?

Nothing here (as expected), though the clouds held the temp above 20 overnight.  Clouds disappeared about sunrise, another sunny day.  We've now had 50% more sunny/mostly sunny days this month than in any of the 23 previous Novembers.
Friday's wet dusting (0.2") is amazingly persistent, most still in place.  In March with the same temps, all would've been gone before Saturday noon.

At observations time this morning I was surprised to find steady light snow falling with some substantial flakes (up to 15 mm diameter), because as far as I knew, our next system in the queue wasn’t supposed to affect the area until later today.  I quickly checked the weather models, and even the mesoscale options don’t seem to have picked this up.  The BTV NWS thankfully has their thoughts on it in the near term of their most recent AFD, which I’ve added below.  As you can see from the radar image, it’s surprisingly robust precipitation for something stealth enough to be missed by even the mesoscale modeling.  I’ll call it more than the scattered flurries they have in the AFD text, but perhaps the precipitation has blossomed more in the past couple of hours.

 

Area Forecast Discussion

National Weather Service Burlington VT

637 AM EST Tue Nov 30 2021

NEAR TERM /THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...

As of 626 AM EST Tuesday...Main change with this update was to expand in both areal and temporal scope scattered flurries for the next few hours. Light returns are showing up on radar across far northeastern NY into northern VT, and area webcams indicate that snow is indeed falling in these locations. However, it does not appear that much, if any, accumulation is occurring with this activity. It`s likely the result of a very weak upper shortwave passing through the northwest flow aloft and should exit to our east a bit later this morning. Otherwise, the forecast is in good shape and no other changes are needed.

Event totals: 0.7” Snow/0.01” L.E.

 

Today’s earlier event finished up this afternoon, so the above totals should be the final values.  Radar suggests the next system is right on the doorstep though, so we’ll see what that one has in store.

 

Details from the 6:00 P.M. Waterbury observations:

New Snow: 0.3 inches

New Liquid: Trace

Temperature: 27.3 F

Sky: Cloudy

Snow at the stake: 5.0 inches

Similar to what I had today. Didn't see ALY mention much in the way of flakes today(outside of the system tonight), but had mood snow pretty much all day.

Dog walk in the Notch this afternoon.  RT 108 closure through the Notch is certainly an awesome spot around here.  You don't get to just easily wander through dramatic terrain like this in many places with just an afternoon stroll up a snowpacked road.  It's actually the same road we live off of, but miles away, which is fun to think about.

Event totals: 0.9” Snow/0.04” L.E.

 

From what I’ve seen in our area, this morning’s snowfall has been some of the most robust from this system thus far.  The flakes were relatively small at observations time, but the size has increased substantially since then.

 

Details from the 6:00 A.M. Waterbury observations:

New Snow: 0.5 inches

New Liquid: 0.02 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 25.0

Snow Density: 4.0% H2O

Temperature: 28.4 F

Sky: Light Snow (1-3 mm flakes)

Snow at the stake: 5.0 inches
